"I Love You" is a song recorded in two languages (Korean and Japanese) by South Korean girl group 2NE1. The Korean version was released on July 5, 2012, through YG Entertainment, while the Japanese version was released on September 19 by YGEX as the group's third Japanese single. The song was produced by 2NE1's long-time collaborator Teddy Park. Musically, "I Love You" is described as an affectionate, lush, and "moody synth" dance-pop track that infuses elements of electronic and traditional Korean trot music to create a "different sound" and "new genre of music", whilst still showing the beauty of Korean culture.

"We have always tried to mix different genres, whether it be rock or acoustic or hip-hop. This time it's like trot. Japan has 'enka' music, and it seems to resonate well with the emotions. Since there is no such genre in the United States, I think it will feel fresh. We want to show the beauty of Korean culture through us."
In a less favorable review, a contributor from Rolling Stone Japan rated the song 3 out of 5 stars, saying that the melodious trot made the song feel a "little damp" and "less fluttering than usual". Conversely, Owen Myers of Popjustice praised the song's composition and ranked "I Love You" as the best K-pop single of 2012, writing that "it combines the best bits of pop into a rarefied cavalcade of amazingness".
